‘Jason Bourne’ Wins Weekend Box Office
Jason Bourne is officially back with a vengeance! The film easily defeated the competition to win the box office this weekend.
Matt Damon returned to his iconic character for the first new movie in the Bourne franchise since 2007. This time around, he was joined by Alicia Vikander, and audiences seemed to approve. With a $60 million debut, Jason Bourne was the second-highest Bourne opening and second-highest opening for Damon in general.
With the action flick in the number one spot this weekend, last week’s chart-topper Star Trek Beyond dropped to a very distant second place with $24 million. Meanwhile, the new comedy Bad Moms had to settle for the third position with a debut of $23.4 million. Box office receipts of $18.2 million put The Secret Life Of Pets in fourth, while the horror flick Lights Out had a fifth-place finish with $10.8 million in ticket sales.
Rounding out the Top 10 were Ice Age: Collision Course in sixth with $10.5 million, and Ghostbusters secured seventh with a $9.8 million haul. Nerve nabbed eighth place with $9 million, while after a sharp drop Finding Dory came in ninth with$4.2 million. Just making into the Top 10 in the very last slot was The Legend Of Tarzan, which earned another $2.4 million.
